All about the PLEATS

This post says it all in the title. Pleated skirts are the spring/summer wardrobe essential and surprisingly you can style them in sooo many ways. 

My favourite way to wear a pleated skirt is with a band tshirt tucked in and layered up with an oversized denim or my silver jacket. I wear this sort of outfit more than once a week because I have quite a collection of skirts. And by quite a collection I have around 4 pink ones and 3 silver. That’s just those shades (they are all different I promise). I just feel so comfortable wearing them as I hate wearing jeans and trousers everyday. Any excuse to wear a skirt or a dress and I’m on it! 

Band and slogan tees are very on trend right now and styling them with a skirt can give you a very girly or grungy look. Some days I feel like a ballerina wearing one and I love it! I also like to wear them with a chunky jumper or a sweatshirt to give a bit of a sport luxe feel teamed with some trainers. To make the trainers girly I like to wear a little frilly or sparkly sock (socks are another one of my things). For a grunge look I add a fish net or some black lace socks. I just buy all these from Primark or eBay, super cheap! 

You can obviously dress these skirts up to with a nice shirt or blouse tucked in with maybe a leather jacket, a statement hand bag and some heeled mules. They are just so versatile! 

Below I have done two looks for inspiration which are very me :)! I need to do another look showing a dressier way to wear them so keep an eye out! I will tag both outfit links at the bottom of this post for you guys if you want to shop the looks. Hope this gives you guys some ideas and outfit inspo 🙂
